:star: Commission FAQ


Ordering a commission is simple :)
Just Follow these steps:
1) Read over my Commission page. Make sure you understand my policies, prices, ect.
2) Be sure that my commissions are open. This can be found with my Art Status information
3) Send me a note with what you have in mind (be as detailed as necessary), and I will get back to you as soon as I can with a price quote :)

Paying For a Commission

:star: Payment? How does that work?
I prefer to use paypal.  Even if you do not have an account, you can still use a debit card/credit card with Paypal. It is fast, easy, and safe.
I do not require payment in advance unless it is a pricey order.  For orders over $50, I require a partial downpayment so that I know you are serious about the commission and being able to pay.  Once I finish the item, I will post it on deviantART Stash with a watermark and ask for the payment.  Once I recieve payment, I will send the commissioner a clean, unwatermarked version of the work and ship the original.  Failure to pay will result in your item not being shipped, and a possible auction/resale of your item.

:star: What is Paypal?
Paypal is a safe, fast, and user friendly site for making online payments.  You do not need to sign up for an account to make a payment through paypal.  It is the site that Ebay, Etsy, and many other online stores use for their checkout process.

:star: I don't have a card...I can't use Paypal.
If you are younger, and don't have your own debit or credit card, then perhaps ask your parents before making a purchase.  They might be able to help you, and make a purchase for you.  Always ask your parents' permission before making an online purchase!

:star: Do you accept payment plans?
Unless the order is unusually pricey, I do not accept payment plans.  Be sure that you are capable of paying for a commission before it is ordered.

:star: Why do you not do point Commissions?
Art is how I make the majority of my money.  I can't make a real income off of points.  

Cancellation Policy

If an item is cancelled, it will not be finished or posted.  If you have already paid a downpayment for an order over $50, you will not be issued a refund.  Please, please, please do not order something that you think will need to be cancelled.  
Cancelled items that have been started will most likely be tweaked into other pieces, personal projects, or used in some other way.

Other Common Questions and Concerns
:star:How long will my piece take?
I honestly can't tell you that. I am a student right now and am very busy. I try to get each piece done in a timely fashion but sometimes that can be hard. I often work out of order, take breaks to clear my mind, and sometimes have artist blocks.
If you have a deadline you need something done by please let me know when placing a commission; however I can not 100% guarantee any deadline with my busy schedule.  Ask me when ordering a commission how long my commission list is.

:star: Why don't you have a "To-Do" List posted? I want to see where I am on your list!
I don't like posting "To-Do" Lists publicly because I find them to be a violation of privacy for those who have purchased commissions.  Sometimes commissioners wish to remain anonymous or don't want others to know how much they are paying for something.  I have a private "To-Do" list on my computer. If you have commissioned something, and wish to know where you are on my "To-Do" list, feel free to send me a note.

:star: Your stuff seems pricey! Why is it so expensive?
Every now and again I get a comment like this, and I want to facepalm into my computer.  I do art for a living.  It's how I make money.  My prices are considerably lower than the standard for the illustration/tattoo/conceptual art industries by HUNDREDS of dollars.  To make my art worth my time, I need to ensure that I am making at least $12/hr for my work.  With all the hours it takes to create my work, negotiate with clients, advertise, and respond to emails my prices have to stay where they are if it is going to be worth my time.

Terms and Conditions
:star: Please Note: I retain the right to use commissioned pieces on my website or anywhere else I see fit. I still retain the right to sell prints of commissioned work. Commissioned pieces are still copyrighted to me.  You may use a commissioned piece for anything personal in which you will not receive a monetary gain (i.e. tattoos, personal blogs, websites, desktops, ect.). If you are looking to use my work for commercial purposes you must have my consent first. You do not have the right to claim that you are the original creator of a commissioned piece. You may resell my original work, but you MAY NOT sell copies, prints, or other merchandise.

I wrote to you a note about a design for a tattoo, but since I didn't hear from you I decided to write a comment here.

My girlfriend would like a tattoo based on you Ink Wash Wolf.

The howling wolf,  she would like it also with a moon just behind the muzzle and a banner under the wolf where it says "Lone wolf" 

I would like it as a pencil sketch, A4 as it seems to be the best way of payment unless you prefer some other method.

i hope to hear from you.

I am so sorry for not getting back to your note!  Things have been piling up in my inbox a bit ^^;
I would love to do these two commissions for you! My commissions are closed at the moment, but I am actually opening back up next week. I'll place you on my waitlist and contact you as soon as I reopen! 
Reader-sempai Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you very much :)

There is though only one commission and that is the one I posted on your commission journal.

The tattoo design based on you Ink Wash Wolf with the additions I specified in my comment.

I look forward to hearing from you soon :)
AshesxScream Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
I am interested in hiring you to design my full back tattoo idea. I am not yet certain if I would want to go with pencil sketch or the sureal watercolor; maybe I could consider both. Anyways, I don't go on my deviant art very often, so please call/text me at 224-523-2159 or email me and I'll send you pictures and give details to what I have in mind. This is a serious request, I won't hassle you or give away your information. Anyone other than you to contact me will be blocked~
(P.S_ the prices are actually reasonable... and I can pay less for you to make the design and just have the tat artist copy it to a temp sticker than having to pay more for them to come up with it) :)
HimekoHimemiya1313 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
oh my gosh everything is so beautiful...i was thinking of commissioning a tattoo design of my type one diabetes with a rose and thorn much would you think that would be?
becca1339 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013
So for your set prices. What is
sizing on the art? Because I'd like something that will fit over the top of my head. Like the size of my Naruto wall scroll... So like 2 1/2 ft X 4 ft. As a rough estimate. How much would that effect the price? One wolf, minor back ground.

I'm also curious about the price of a tattoo design. It's going to be a back piece, two demons, Shukaku and Kyuubi (feel free to google), in a yin yang together to put it simply.

These are things I'm really interested in, but I kinda need to know how much they would cost first before ordering a comission. XD

Everything is so perfect! I am finding it very hard to choose anything...
SasuNaru-69-niki Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I was wondering if I could commission you for "Colored with simple background"? What I really want is a phoenix that is shooting downwards that looks like a blue comet, and the tail turns into a tree and changes from blue to green as it goes upwards. With a few more colors I suppose, but those are the colors I want to be dominant. I also want it's wings to be spread out a bit, as if it's diving, but coming to the end of its dive. If it makes it easier, I want it tattooed on my back, and the wings to wrap around my sides a bit, with the head of it at the base of my back, and the tree at my shoulders. If that makes sense? Or is even possible for you to do. 

Just let me know how much and if you can do this for me, thank you!

Ichoal Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Your art is amazing.

Can I inquire as to how much a pencil sketch with slight purple tinting in area's would go for?

My grandmother recently passed away and I've been working on designing a tattoo in her memory. I've got what I want but I'd like to commission someone to draw it up properly. It's a simplistic kookaburra, similar to a tribal tattoo or silhouette but will be done in white ink/slight colour shading. This is what I have:

There is a lot I discuss about what I want but I'll let you decide if you can help me or not first :) Thankyou~
Lucky978 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Hello :) Thank you very much for the interest in my art.

I could do something like for about $30. If that sounds okay with you, feel free to send me a note and we can discuss more details.

I am interested in using one of your current sketches as a tattoo. Can you please let me know if the image titled "dragon_and_wolf_by_lucky978" is available.

If so, I would like to purchase it for the use as a back tattoo. The tattoo would be black ink only.

If it is availalbe, I am able to pay for the image immediately.

I really enjoy your rainbow paintings and was wondering if you would be able to do a hyena and a tiger ( headshots like the usual posted) together. I like the dark colors you show in the commission listing. This wouldn't even be for a while I was thinking of doing it as a gift for my fiance to hang in our new house.
Lucky978 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Hello :) I am really sorry about the late response! I think I received this message back while I was on vastion.
I would be very interested in doing something like this for you! I reopen my commissions in about a week or two. Would you like to be put on a wait list so I can contact you when they reopen?
Ferawenn Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
Hello! I want a colored simple backround.

I would like a winged wolf version of her- [link] i
In the pic, I would like her wings to really stand out.
So $42 plus the shipping?
Lucky978 Featured By Owner May 6, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I can definitely do that for you :)
And that is correct. I'll send you a note with some more details.
Ferawenn Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
Ok thanks!
Ferawenn Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
If I buy a commission, do I actually get the piece, or just see it on my computer screen?
Lucky978 Featured By Owner May 6, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
You get the original piece :) You just have to pay a little extra for shipping
Ferawenn Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
Ok thanks :)
FurretTails Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
does A2, A3, and A4; are they the size of the paper or something? I've never seen anyone use that kind of term on a commission price list before ^^;

Also I know your Q&A said you don't belong to a fandom, but are more of a furry artist by chance? You draw many wolves which happen to be a very popular animal drawn in the fandom :'D
Do you draw anthro's or just ferals? *trying to get a feel for a future commission so I can get an idea of what you prefer to draw :'D*
